click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive and detailed map of North America engraved by J. and C. Walker for the Society For The Diffusion Of Useful Knowledge - SDUK. The Society began in 1826, the concept of a Scottish lawyer Henry Brougham, conscious of the need for affordable publications to satisfy and educate an expanding British population of increasing wealth, literacy and travel expectations. Over 200 maps and plans were produced, first sold as part works on subscription and from 1844 in a variety of bound atlases. This map was one of those added to the original nucleus of Society maps and reflects the remarkable development of the United States in mid-century. This map appeared in the "Complete Atlas" published by Thomas Letts and covers the United States from coast to coast.
